Things to Know About These Builds

Builds Are Purely Elemental

Builds Are Purely Elemental

Since Alatreon can only be weakened through elemental damage, the following builds are set up with Elemental-specific equipment to make weakening it easier.

Priority is Either Ice or Fire

Alatreon will start in either its Fire or Ice State depending on the quest for the day. Use equipment to counter its starting state. If you deal enough damage, it will continue to stay in that state, allowing you good elemental damage throughout the fight!

Dragon/Water/Thunder is Neutral

If you want to be able to deal elemental damage across all of its states, using Dragon, Water, or Thunder weapons could be good. However, this will make clearing the quest to take longer.

Take Note of Minimum Elemental Damage During Spirit Helm

The Long Sword is a viable weapon against Alatreon. However, since it's most powerful attack, the Spirit Helm Breaker does minimum elemental damage, it's not as helpful to contain Alatreon before its Eschaton Judgment attack.

Not As Recommended of a Weapon

Even with a full elemental build, the Long Sword is still not as great against Alatreon since you get the most out of the Long Sword with raw damage than elemental damage.

Focus on Damage with Current Ammo

Since you can't freely go back to camp without fainting, this build will make the most of each ammo you shoot. Though, if you're going to solo run, make sure to get Felyne Insurance or Guts.

You've incorrectly labeled your Charge Blade set as a Switch Axe set.
